We arrived in Kilkenny and decided to have lunch beside the river. The Kilkenny River Court has a good reputation. The outside seating area was fairly empty and when we arrived a couple were complaining about the quality of the food. We waited a few minutes and ordered an open Salmon sandwich and egg mayonnaise sandwich. Drinks were provided immediately... More

I had heard so many good things about this hotel so maybe I was expecting too much. I do not have anything bad to say about it but it just did not do it for me or my wife compared to other hotels which we have stayed in kilkenny. Food and bar was fine but sleep quality was very poor... More

We spent only one night in Kilkenny river court hotel on our way back to Dublin but it was a perfect choice. First, we didn't book it in advance and decision to stay there was taken just on the spot. The receptionist was very helpful and checked us in quickly and with no trouble. The rooms are big and very... More

My husband & I stayed here on short notice and the room was comfortable. However when I went to take a soak in the tub there was no hot water available, we asked that someone come check it which we were assured would happen. Then we decided to eat in the hotel that evening however having been ignored by staff... More

I stayed at the River Court Hotel on Saturday night along with my four daughters. We had booked the girly night out which included a 30 min treatment each, use of the leisure facilities, pre dinner cocktail and dinner. It was all amazing. My neck shoulder and back massage was unreal, could have stayed for another 30 mins. I then... More

My wife and I stayed for weekend March 28/30. We found the location perfect. The staff were well presented,professional and friendly. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was dated. One of the hand towels was so worn it had holes and should have been retired long ago. I have never encountered a smaller or shallower bath. Certainly water... More

We had a night's stay booked in Kilkenny during our driving tour around Ireland. Kilkenny seems to be a nice little town with the castle as the mail attraction. It was tough getting into the hotel..especially for rookie Ireland drivers, the streets are pretty narrow and the entrance to the hotel even more so. The 5 euro charge for parking... More

Just returned from one night stay in the River Court and could not speak highly enough. We were a group of 25 girls on a dinner, B and B package for a hen night. The dinner menu in the restaurant was excellent value with lots of choice and the kitchen catered easily for dietary requirements. We had the use of... More
